Samuel Billaud Chablis
£23.50
This is a great example of the power and complexity this vintage has delivered in the entry level wines. Concentrated notes of lemon oil, red apple and iodine with a tenacious, lifted finish, a village Chablis that is punching well above its weight.

Description

Details

After five years of legal wrangling 2/3 of Domaine Billaud-Simon was sold in August 2014 to Faiveley. From Samuel's 1/6 share of the property he has received 4.2ha of vineyards of the domaine from which he made wine in 2014. His sister obtained a similar amount of vineyard from her 1/6 share. 2/3 of the 20ha property was sold to Domaine Faiveley, including the buildings.

Samuel will continue the existing négociant business making a range of Chablis, premiers and grands crus. It remains to be seen whether he will bottle the domaine wines with the negociant ones or keep them separate.
